MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.395 Here is the long history of Rama in which is shown how Rama by his prowess slew Ravana in battle.
Mbh.3.99.5207 For the destruction of Ravana, O king, Vishnu, in his own body, took his birth as the son of illustrious Dasaratha.
Mbh.3.146.7516 And from Janasthana, that mighty Rakshasa monarch, the wicked Ravana, carried away his Rama's queen by stratagem and force, deceiving, O sinless one, that foremost of men, through the agency of a Rakshasa, Maricha, who assumed the form of a deer marked with gem-like and golden spots
Mbh.3.147.7522 Then a mighty vulture Sampati by name, communicated the tidings that Sita was in the abode of Ravana.
Mbh.3.147.7527 Then by prowess Rama slew those Rakshasas in battle, and also Ravana, the oppressor of the worlds together with his Rakshasa followers.
Mbh.3.149.7630 O hero, to-day this wonder of my heart is very great, that thou remaining by his side, Rama should have encountered Ravana personally.
Mbh.3.149.7632 Surely, O son of the wind-god, there is nothing that is incapable of being achieved by thee; and in fight, Ravana together with his followers was no match for thee single-handed
Mbh.3.149.7636 But if I had slain Ravana, that thorn of the worlds, the glory of Raghu's son would have been obscured, and for this it is that I left him alone.
Mbh.3.150.7689 And, O Bhima, having felt a human being by coming in contact with thee, I have been put in mind of that son of Raghu, who was Vishnu himself under the name of Rama, and who delighted the heart of the world; and who was as the sun in regard to the lotus face of Sita, and also to that darkness, Ravana.
Mbh.3.272.13235 SECTION CCLXXII Markandeya said, O bull of the Bharata race, even Rama suffered unparalleled misery, for the evil-minded Ravana, king of the Rakshasas, having recourse to deceit and overpowering the vulture Jatayu, forcibly carried away his wife Sita from his asylum in the woods.
Mbh.3.272.13238 Whose son also was Ravana and for what was it that he had any misunderstanding with Rama?
Mbh.3.272.13249 And now, O king, I will relate unto thee birth of Ravana.
Mbh.3.272.13250 That Lord of all creatures and the Creator of the Universe viz, the Self-create Prajapati himself, that god possessed of great ascetic merit, is the grandfather of Ravana.
Mbh.3.273.13266 Two sons, those foremost of Rakshasas named Kumvakarna and the Ten-headed Ravana, both unequalled on earth in prowess, were born to Pushpotkata.
Mbh.3.273.13279 And the Ten-headed Ravana, supporting life by means of air alone and surrounded by the five sacred fires and absorbed in meditation, remained standing on one leg for a thousand years.
Mbh.3.273.13292 thereupon Ravana said, May I never experience defeat at the hands of Gandharvas, Celestials, Kinnaras, Asuras, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Serpents and all other creatures'
Mbh.3.273.13296 Markandeya said, Thus addressed, the Ten-headed Ravana was highly gratified, for on account of his perverted understanding, the man-eating one slightened human beings.
Mbh.3.273.13305 And Ravana forcibly took from him the celestial chariot Pushpaka.
Mbh.3.273.13310 On the other hand, the powerful and man-eating Rakshasas and Pisachas, having assembled together, invested the Ten-headed Ravana with their sovereignty.
Mbh.3.273.13311 And Ravana, capable of assuming any form at will and terrible in prowess, and capable also of passing through the air, attacked the gods and the Daityas and wrested from them all their valuable possessions.
Mbh.3.273.13312 And as he had terrified all creatures, he was called Ravana.
Mbh.3.273.13313 And Ravana, capable of mustering any measure of might inspired the very gods with terror
Mbh.3.275.13398 And after these Rakshasas had been slain, Surpanakha with mutilated nose and lips, repaired to Lanka, the abode of her brother Ravana.
Mbh.3.275.13399 And when that Rakshasa woman, senseless with grief and with dry blood-stains on her face, appeared before Ravana, she fell down at his feet.
Mbh.3.275.13400 And beholding her so horribly mutilated, Ravana became senseless with wrath and grinding his teeth sprung up from his seat.
Mbh.3.275.13408 Informed of the slaughter of his relatives, Ravana, impelled by Fate, remembered Maricha for slaying Rama.
Mbh.3.275.13411 Then crossing the Ocean, the Ten headed Ravana reached Gokarna, the favourite resort of the illustrious god armed with the trident.
Mbh.3.275.13412 And there Ravana met with his old friend Maricha who, from fear of Rama himself, had adopted an ascetic mode of life
Mbh.3.276.13413 SECTION CCLXXVI Markandeya said, Beholding Ravana come, Maricha received him with a respectful welcome, and offered him fruits and roots.
Mbh.3.276.13414 And after Ravana had taken his seat, and rested himself a while, Maricha skilled in speech, sat beside Ravana and addressed him who was himself as eloquent in speech, saying, Thy complexion hath assumed an unnatural hue; is it all right with thy kingdom, O king of the Rakshasas?
Mbh.3.276.13419 Ravana, whose heart was agitated with wrath and humiliation informed him briefly of the acts of Rama and the measures that were to be taken'
Mbh.3.276.13424 To this Ravana indignantly replied, reproaching him thus, If thou dost not obey my orders, thou shall surely die at my hands'
Mbh.3.276.13427 Then the Ten-headed Ravana said unto him, Go and tempt Sita, assuming the shape of a deer with golden horns and a golden skin!
Mbh.3.276.13432 Thus addressed, Maricha performed his obsequies in anticipation and with a sorrowful heart, followed Ravana who was in advance of him.
Mbh.3.276.13434 And Ravana appeared in the guise of an ascetic with head shaven, and adorned with a Kamandala, and a treble staff.
Mbh.3.276.13452 Meanwhile, the Rakshasa Ravana, wearing a genteel guise though wicked at heart, and like unto fire enveloped in a heap of ashes, showed himself there.
Mbh.3.276.13455 Disregarding these and assuming his own proper shape, that bull among Rakshasas began to re-assure the princess of Videha in these words, I am, O Sita, the king of the Rakshasas, known by the name of Ravana!
Mbh.3.276.13464 Ravana, however, followed her thither and intercepted her further progress.
Mbh.3.276.13466 But Ravana seized her by the hair of her head, and rose up into the air.
Mbh.3.276.13467 Then a huge vulture of the name of Jatayu living on a mountain peak, beheld that helpless lady thus weeping and calling upon Rama in great distress while being carried away by Ravana
Mbh.3.277.13469 And beholding his daughter-in-law Sita on the lap of Ravana, that ranger of the skies rushed in wrath against the king of the Rakshasas.
Mbh.3.277.13470 And the vulture addressed Ravana, saying, Leave the princess of Mithila, leave her I say!
Mbh.3.277.13476 And attacked thus by that vulture desirous of Rama's good, Ravana, taking up a sword, cut off the two wings of that bird.
Mbh.3.277.13495 And then they saw that creature to be a bird destitute of two wings, and that bird then told them of his own overthrow at the hands of Ravana for the sake of Sita.
Mbh.3.277.13496 Then Rama enquired of the vulture as to the way Ravana had taken.
Mbh.3.277.13498 And having understood from the sign the vulture had made that Ravana had gone towards the south, Rama reverencing his father's friend, caused his funeral obsequies to be duly performed.
Mbh.3.277.13527 As to thyself, O Rama, Sita hath been carried away with violence by king Ravana who dwelleth in Lanka.
Mbh.3.277.13535 Without doubt Ravana and others are known to the king of the monkeys'
Mbh.3.278.13541 Thou hast obtained information of Ravana and of the princess of Videha!
Mbh.3.278.13551 And when Rama informed Sugriva of the object he had in view, Sugriva showed him the piece of cloth that Sita had dropped among the monkeys, while being carried away by Ravana.
Mbh.3.278.13589 Meanwhile Ravana excited by lust, having reached his city of Lanka, placed Sita in an abode, resembling Nandana itself, within a forest of Asokas, that looked like an asylum of ascetics.
Mbh.3.278.13615 And, O timid lady, entertain thou no fear on account of Ravana, who is censured by the whole world, for, O daughter, thou art safe from him on account of Nalakuvera's curse.
Mbh.3.279.13636 SECTION CCLXXIX Markandeya said, And while the chaste Sita was dwelling there afflicted with melancholy and grief on account of her lord, attired in mean garb, with but a single jewel on the marital thread on her wrist, and incessantly weeping, seated on a stone, and waited upon by Rakshasa women, Ravana, afflicted by the shafts of the god of desire, came to her and approached her presence.
Mbh.3.279.13638 And dressed with care, Ravana looked like the Kalpa tree in Indra's garden.
Mbh.3.279.13668 And hearing these cruel words uttered by Sita, the foolish Ravana, although thus rejected, addressed Sita once more, saying, O lady, let the god having the Makara for his emblem burn me sorely.
Mbh.3.280.13696 But they that had gone towards the South did not make their appearance And they that came back represented to Rama, saying that although they had searched the whole earth with her belt of seas, yet they could not find either the princess of Videha or Ravana.
Mbh.3.280.13737 That king of birds then urged us to give up our vow by these words of his: Ravana is, indeed, known to me.
Mbh.3.281.13805 Rama replied unto him, saying, O lord of rivers, male and female, I desire thee to grant me a way for my troops, passing along which I may slay the Ten-headed Ravana, that wretch of Pulastya's race!
Mbh.3.281.13829 And having quartered his troops in those woods that skirted the city, Rama then sent the monkey Angada with great wisdom as his envoy to Ravana
Mbh.3.282.13831 Ravana, on the other hand, planted in his city many appliances constructed according to the rules of military science.
Mbh.3.282.13854 Hearing these defiant words of the enemy, king Ravana bore them ill, becoming senseless with wrath.
Mbh.3.283.13882 SECTION CCLXXXIII Markandeya said, And while those troops thus withdrawn were reposing themselves in their quarters, many little Rakshasas and Pisachas owning Ravana as their leader, penetrated amongst them.
Mbh.3.283.13886 And unable to endure this, Ravana marched out at the head of his troops.
Mbh.3.283.13887 And surrounded by his terrible army of Rakshasas and Pisachas, Ravana who was conversant with the rules of warfare like a second Usanas invested the monkey host, having disposed his troops in that array which is named after Usanas himself.
Mbh.3.283.13888 And beholding Ravana advancing with his army disposed in that array, Rama, following the mode recommended by Vrihaspati, disposed his troops in counter array for opposing that wanderer of the night.
Mbh.3.283.13889 And coming up quickly, Ravana began to fight with Rama.
Mbh.3.283.13892 And Ravana covered Rama with a shower of darts and lances and swords, and Rama also afflicted Ravana with his whetted arrows of iron furnished with the sharpest points, and in the same way Lakshmana smote the contending Indrajit with arrows capable of penetrating into the most vital parts and Indrajit also smote Sumitra's son with an arrowy shower.
Mbh.3.284.13903 Then mighty and great and fearful was the uproar that arose there in consequence of the warriors of Rama and Ravana rushing against each other.
Mbh.3.284.13912 And the surviving wreck of the Rakshasa army, having reached the city, informed king Ravana of everything that had happened.
Mbh.3.284.13913 And hearing from them that Prahasta and that mighty archer Dhumraksha, had both, with their armies, been slain by the powerful monkeys, Ravana drew a deep sigh and springing up from his excellent seat, said, the time is come for Kumbhakarna to act,
Mbh.3.285.13961 The deadly struggle, however, between the soldiers of Rama and Ravana, rushing against one another, instead of coming to an end even after this, raged on as before.
Mbh.3.286.13964 SECTION CCLXXXVI Markandeya said, Learning that Kumbhakarna had with his followers, fallen in battle as also that great warrior Prahasta, and Dhumraksha too of mighty energy, Ravana then addressed his heroic son Indrajit saying, O slayer of foes, slay thou in battle Rama and Sugriva and Lakshmana.
Mbh.3.286.13976 But when the son of Ravana found that he could not by his arrows gain any advantage over his adversary, that foremost of mighty warriors mustered all his energy.
Mbh.3.286.13983 The son of Ravana then took up a mace and struck on the left flank that foremost of monkeys, the heroic Angada who was then staying close beside him.
Mbh.3.286.13986 And thereupon jumping from his horseless and driverless car, the son of Ravana disappeared from sight, O king, by aid of his powers of illusion.
Mbh.3.286.13993 Indeed, the son of Ravana, concealing himself by his powers of illusion, furiously attacked the monkey host.
Mbh.3.287.13995 SECTION CCLXXXVII Markandeya said, Beholding both the brothers Rama and Lakshmana prostrate on the ground, the son of Ravana tied them in a net-work of those arrows of his which he had obtained as boons.
Mbh.3.287.14012 The son of Sumitra then, under Vibhishana's guidance, rushed towards that wrathful son of Ravana coming back, from desire of battle, to lead the attack.
Mbh.3.287.14017 And pierced with Lakshmana's arrows, the son of Ravana became senseless with wrath.
Mbh.3.287.14026 And Ravana then beheld that car without his son on it.
Mbh.3.287.14027 And hearing that his son had been slain, Ravana suffered his heart to be overpowered with grief.
Mbh.3.287.14039 With these and many other words of the same import, Avindhya succeeded in appeasing Ravana.
Mbh.3.288.14042 SECTION CCLXXXVIII Markandeya said, The Ten-necked Ravana, excited to fury at the death of his beloved son, ascended his car decked with gold and gems.
Mbh.3.288.14043 And surrounded by terrible Rakshasas with various kinds of weapons in their hands, Ravana rushed towards Rama, fighting with numerous monkey-chief.
Mbh.3.288.14045 And those foremost of monkeys and bears began to exterminate with trunks of trees, the soldiers of the Ten-necked Ravana, in his every sight.
Mbh.3.288.14046 And beholding the enemy slaughtering his troops, the Rakshasa king, Ravana, possessed of great powers of illusion, began to put them forth.
Mbh.3.288.14056 Therefore, O tiger among men, do thou, riding on the car driven by me, quickly slay Ravana in battle!
Mbh.3.288.14058 Thus addressed by him, the descendant of Raghu's race, however, doubted the truthful words of Matali, thinking this is another illusion produced by the Rakshasas, Vibhishana then addressed him saying, This, O tiger among men, is no illusion of the wicked Ravana!
Mbh.3.288.14060 The descendant of Kakutstha then cheerfully said unto Vibhishana, So be it, and riding on that car, rushed wrathfully upon Ravana.
Mbh.3.288.14061 And when Ravana, too, rushed against his antagonist, a loud wail of woe was set up by the creatures of the Earth, while the celestials in heaven sent forth a leonine roar accompanied by beating of large drums.
Mbh.3.288.14066 And beholding that most difficult feat, Ravana was struck with fear.
Mbh.3.288.14074 And beholding Ravana slain by Rama of famous achievements, the celestials, with the Gandharvas and the Charanas, rejoiced exceedingly.
Mbh.3.288.14075 And deprived of universal dominion by the energy of the Brahma weapon, the five elements forsook the illustrious Ravana.
Mbh.3.289.14078 SECTION CCLXXXIX Markandeya said, Having slain Ravana, that wretched king of the Rakshasas and foe of the celestials, Rama with his friends and Sumitra's son rejoiced exceedingly.
Mbh.3.289.14084 Then that old and wise counsellor of Ravana known by the name of Avindhya, with Sita walking before him but behind Vibhishana who was at the front, came out of the city.
Mbh.3.289.14122 For that person had cursed Ravana of old, saying, that if he ever approached an unwilling woman, his head should certainly be split into a hundred fragments.
Mbh.5.109.5023 It was here that the illustrious descendant of Pulastya, Ravana, the king of the Rakshasas, undergoing ascetic austerities, solicited the boon of immortality from the gods.
Mbh.7.23.1173 On Ghatotkacha's standard, O king, a vulture shone brightly, and his steeds also were capable of going everywhere at will, like those of Ravana in days of yore.
